Yivríndil was created as the language of the Yivríndi, one of the people groups inhabiting the fictional world of Aratasa. Thus its practical use is for my writing, but privately I have made it as an artlang, embodying the phonological and grammatical principles I find aesthetic. Within these bounds I have also tried to make it as naturalistic as possible, introducing natlangish diachronic irregularities and other features to make the language seem realistic. Jesse S.
